    its already screwed, i'd drill some holes and attach some bracing, if you've been riding it broken for a week already then its gonna be fine for a few more days with some more metal on there.

    ...maybe

    just put the tape back on and forget you ever saw anything... until the tube sheard and stabs you... then worry about it.

    it figures my wheels are done today. i think i might actually throw some tape on it for a few minutes while i "wear them in." maybe find some krazy glue or something. i mean if it worked before...

    maybe its time to make the "uci switch" and keep away from that bash even moreso than before...

    Definitely J-B weld it! That's your best shot without welding (and then re-heat-treating). I suggest laying down teh J-B weld uber-thick, then taping over so it smooshes into the crack, and ends up smooth on the outside. Then give it overnight (or longer) to cure. Good luck -

    i really didnt use the bash all too much though, when i did i tried to be smooth, but i guess it doesnt matter hwo smooth you are when your landing on your frame.

    right now im not too worried about it, Ed's lettin me use his old echo frame for a few days :)D ) but once i get back from this weekend my moms friend is gona fix it with some tape, hot glue, glitter and ribbons. should be good as new.

    tape, hot glue, glitter and ribbons are the very best way to bond metal together.
    it will last for ever if you dont sell that awesome frame.
